Fundraising Coffee Concert at Stelly’s

Stelly’s Secondary School students and two special guest groups are holding a fundraising concert next week in support of the Community Arts Theatre at Stelly’s Society.

The Coffee Concert, featuring Stelly’s band and choir students as well as the Sweet Adelines and the Village Squires takes place March 5 at 7 p.m. at the school. Ticket proceeds ($10 each at the door) will go to the new theatre project spearheaded by past Stelly’s music teacher, Jan Heinrichs, who began work a few years ago on a project to expand the school’s theatre.

“The school needs a new theatre so badly,” Heinrichs said, adding that the society’s vision for the project sees a new theatre at the school as a community asset, not just a school asset.

To that end, she’s been working on planning fundraisers and concerts like the upcoming Coffee Concert to support the expansion project.

“The City of Gardens Chorus (Sweet Adelines) is thrilled to support Stelly’s fundraising event for a new community arts theatre,” said City of Gardens Chorus Engagements Chair, Nancy Townsend.

“We look forward to showcasing our a cappella four-part harmonies, ringing chords and dynamic choreography [at the concert] on March 5.”
